What If?

I often find God in questions.

Not in the answers, but in the asking. And the two questions I always end up asking are:

  • What if everything I think is true is actually false?
  • What difference would it make?

I find that asking the first question helps me understand other points of view. That question reminds me that I do not know everything. It is a path to humility. I find that the second question leads me to compassion. It leads me to see other people as people struggling to make sense of their experiences, as people who are trying to find joy in their suffering. I see that they are just like me.

Where do your questions lead you?
